Right in the heart of the old city of Catania, an elegant, bright apartment provided with everything needed for an unforgettable stay. Welcome at our home!

The space

The apartment is located in the old city of Catania. The building is at few steps away from Piazza Duomo (the main Catania square), Castello Ursino (the medieval castel) and the historical fish market (la Peschieria) where you can buy very fresh fish as well as fruits, vegetables, cheeses, spices, olives... The building has been built around the end of the XIX century by a noble of the city, as the main family building, and the apartment correspond to what originally was the most important floor.
That's why the apartment is so big and spacious, with very hight vault ceiling: a dining room and a huge living both with fresco vault, two double bedroom (one of it is also provided of a small bed for children), a kitchen with all comforts and a bathroom with a walk-in shower.
The apartment is bright and the street is very quite. The new wood triple pane windows guarantee anyway a complete insulation.
The house is partially heated up with a recessed pellet stove inside the fireplace in the living, and a heat pump in the main bedroom. In winter the apartment does not reach a very warm temperature, like in every old sicilian house (nevertheless in the bedroom and nearby the fireplace you will feel a very comfortable temperature), while in summer the thick stone walls maintain a very fresh temperature.
This is our house, where we live for several months during the year. You will find there our personal belongings, our books, our pictures hanging on the walls and also some toys for your kids.
We wish you will feel at home as well!

The apartment is best located in the pulsing centre of Catania. It's a historic building, the interior is careful renovated, the exterior is original, so you get a truly impression of housing in the 19th century. The original architecture is preserved, with stucco and reconstructed fresco's at the ceiling. This is more, than we expected and we've seen in other locations. By the way, the equipment is also perfect and complete. Our kids, 9 and 14, feel like at home. Perfect stay.

Little paradise We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and charming appartment. We felt like in a palace. The rooms are huge with very high painted ceilings, full of lovely stucco and the floors are covered wit colourfull tiles. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need. Valentina who received us was very friendly, gave us helpfull tips and provided us with bread, milk, coffe, fresh eggs from happy chickens and grissinis. The communication with her was nice, quick and easy. We stayed five nights in this place and loved every minute. Highly recommended!

Siamo una giovane famiglia con un bimbo di quasi tre anni, amanti della musica, dell'arte e della natura. Inoltre siamo dei romantici cultori della buona cucina.
Lavoriamo nello spettacolo e per lavoro siamo costretti a viaggiare spesso e a lasciare la nostra casa per periodi anche lunghi. Per questo motivo abbiamo deciso di condividere la nostra casa con i viaggiatori che come noi amano vivere e respirare le più autentiche atmosfere che una città come Catania sa offrire.
Ci auguriamo che possiate sentirvi come a casa vostra!
